Thread: City of Wheloon - WIP

Hybrid View

    Post City of Wheloon - WIP

    I've started a new project ( like i needed another one) for my campaign in the forgotten realms region of Cormyr.

    I needed a city map of Wheloon and since i pretty much redo all the maps from the books i buy, i thought to go back to CC3 with this one. More precisely CD3 since it came out two weeks ago.

    This is very much a WIP cause i'm trying my hand at shaded relief with this one. Well, what can be done in CC3.

    I hope to get some comments on this one to see if the effects is somewhat convincing.

    Here is my first try.

    Thanks

    Can't view the full-size version, it comes back with an error. Might want to re-post.

    It worked for me.
    Anyway, very nice map, congrats! I'm probably gonna "steal" some ideas from you

    It looks quite natural and I like the way the roads lead up to many houses. The map looks really good zoomed out. How did you do those height lines? With the line tool?

    How do people cross the river? Is there gonna be a ferry of bridge?

    Glad to see more people using CD3. Now hopefully we can learn from each others work!

    Hi,

    As it's a very early stage of development, the map is missing many details. Like a way to illustrate it's a ferry that get people across the river.

    The contour lines are actually smooth polygons that are hollowed.

    Any comments on the shading part. It is convincing?

    Yes, I like it. Although if you zoom in too much the effect is lost.

    The fields look nice and finally we have a ferry

    Also, the relief looks a lot better!
